Hello 2013! Hello Poetry Again!

Hello 2013!

I’ve been busy for the last couple of months even till now so I haven’t found the time yet to blog but I surely will blog again because my backlogs are piling like crazy.

I would like to greet this new year with a simple poem I wrote yesterday and posted it on my Facebook . I used to write lots of poems and have it all posted in my Facebook notes, but this year I would like to start posting it here. I’m also thinking of posting my old poems in this blog.

To be honest, I’m not even sure what kind of a style I have in my poems (free verse, prose?). I’m not really too technical about my poetry, I just simply right and express.

I hope you’ll enjoy this one.

Title: Why?

I looked at you

With a frozen stare

As cold and silent

Seconds envelops

The suspending air

My thoughts race

Like galloping horses

Driven by brave warriors

To their inevitable end


But within this strained

Unflinching eyes

A man is drowning

With questions

Burning like charcoals

Heaped at the crown

Of his head

Questions that did not exist

Till one fateful day

I saw you with someone else


Then silenced was interrupted

With a single question

Finally thrown into the air

Imagine the red sea

Splitting between us

I asked “why?”

One word, that can

Echo through a lifetime

Like a rod striking a rock

Yielding not water

But curdling blood

From a wounded heart


If it does not birth forth

An answer that can

Bring peace and rest

To this restless “why?”

Then it will be forever damned

Damned within this

Very mind and soul

Haunting each sleep

Bringing pain

To lovely memories

Of you and me


And then

You asked

For one last kiss

Which I did not obliged

Because it will

Feel more like

A thank you and goodbye

Merged into one final gesture

Of loveless torture


I will not allow you

To drive the final nail

So I walked away

While you chased behind

For that one last kiss

I thought…

Keep the nail

I already have two

On both hands

And a crown of thorns

In my head

Spare my feet

So I can walk away

And let my pain die in peace


I stared ahead

A future of uncertain worth

Leaving behind a

Worthless certainty

And then

As I crossed the street

A flash

In a split second

There was no more street


I stared again

Confused and shaken

There was no more street

What was once Shoppe 24

And a dusty street

With pixelated vehicles

And faceless kids

Across me

Is now a window

Without the misty

Glow of sweet sunrise

Kissing my face


A hospital?


Am I in heaven?

A heaven deserted?

Or is this Gehenna?

The accursed place

Outside Jerusalem

That turns out to be

A nice garden for picnic


Where am I?

I realized

I’m still wrapped in an

Old blanket sheet

Instead of strips linen

Soaked in spices

Protecting me

From the post Chrismtas Season

And New Year’s Eve

Cold spells


I mindlessly rose up

From my bed

And walked

Like coming out

From a stone tomb

Like an automated


Obeying the commands

Of a bladder in full


Then I realized

I had a journey

That exists when our eyes

Move rapidly

Like jumbled neutrons

Electrons and protons

In a billiard table

Creating a vortex

Fertile for the alternate dimension

To thrive and bring

Temporal bliss or despair


Maybe the sandman

Lost to the boogeyman

In a game of chess

Still the word “why?”

Lingered like a souvenir

I brought from that

Alternate heartbreaking dimension

I went back to my bed

Wondering “why?”


After almost an hour

Of fruitless pondering

I slipped again

Into the vortex

And found myself

With you beside me

In a foreign land

Smiling happily

My heart


Our love


A world

where the word

“Why?” exist

Not between us

But outside us

Staring at us

Chasing at us

But never conquering us

Then I knew


This is the alternate dimension

I would like to permanently bring

For you and me




p.s. today is our 20th monthsary so me and Leia will be having a simple date later. Thank God for an awesome year ahead!

Happy New Year!
